Chanel Summer 2010 Les Pop-up Collection: Nouvelle Vague 527 & Riviera 537 Nail Varnish Reviews and Swatches

Today I checked out the nail colors for Chanel's upcoming Les Pops Summer beauty collection. For those of you who love bold nail colors, you are in for a real treat! I can't wait to see the lipcolors come next week. Peter Philips has a very strong summer collection that packs punchier pinks, corals and serenades us with a playful blue as compared to this past spring's collection.
The 3 nail colors in this collection are:

Mistral- a soft sheer pink with gold shimmer. Pinker than Jade Rose and Ming.

Riviera- a strong creamy hot pink.

Nouvelle Vague- a creamy minty turquoise.

Initially, I thought Nouvelle Vague would be a bit more colorful, I was expecting an electric blue but the borderline pastel-like nature of the polish is surprisingly flattering. This is definitely a fun color that I can't wait to wear. My standout would have to be Riviera. It just popped against my skin.! I got 2 complements within the hour of having it on, I also plan on wearing this one regularly. Compared to Boa, Riviera is a much brighter pink, though it can be a close dupe.
Mistral is a beautiful color as well, and the tamest of the three. If you are looking for a perfect pink with flecks of gold, let Mistral be the one.
